REMEMBER the innocence?

THE SYSTEM DOES NOT.

a compassionate HOUSTON JUVENILE CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY

Children, students, and teenagers under 18 can all be federally and locally charged with almost any crime and tried as a juvenile, and even in some cases tried as adults if the charges are serious enough and the child is old enough to be charged as an adult.  However, in most situations, typical charges against the child involve local or city ordinance violations or low level crimes and misdemeanors. Juveniles in Texas are typically charged with crimes such as:

  • Possession or delivery of Marijuana and some other narcotic/drugs

  • Alcohol related crimes such as juvenile in possession of alcohol on school premises

  • Petty theft which occur among students, friends or rivals or for purely opportunistic reasons and randomly

  • Juvenile assault charges which often can arise out of any physical altercations or verbal threats of violence, in addition to rising out of affairs related to bullying and cyber bullying when involving online communications

  • Juvenile probation violation, or deferred adjudication violations

  • Traffic rimes such as DWI, reckless driving, hit and run (leaving the scene), driving on a suspended license or without a drivers license

  • Juvenile sex crimes which are often among the most troubling and serious charges teenagers and children can be accused of, typically involved charges and activities such as:

    • Sexual assault

    • Lewd and lascivious conduct

    • Indecent exposure

    • Juvenile rape (often involving alcohols, drugs, or date rape intoxicants

    • Sexting & child pornography charges

It is one of the most difficult affairs a parent can ever deal with when they find out their precious child has been criminally charged as a juvenile.
